My flatmates window was completely smashed from the typhoon and currently our landlord has set up the arrangement to get it fixed.
Now the problem that we face is that his room is destroyed, with his mattress and his walls being completely damp. Cause of this, mold has been growing on his walls at a rapid pace. Also, he received an injury as a bit of the debris glass hit and got stuck in his head (minor), resulting in him going to hospital and being signed off for 4 days.
Currently both of us have found temporary accommodation while the room gets fixed. My room is perfectly fine, but I am concerned with the mold (have sensitive skin) that is growing on his wall which is in line with my room. All of his belongings are in the living room which is taking up the majority of space.
I was wondering what action can we take in regards to rent and compensation? Obviously his room is not in a livable condition, whereas mine can be deemed as. However, with the room growing mold rapidly and the mattress stinking up the flat, it is not an environment I want to be in. In an ideal situation, we will not pay rent from the time the event happened (16th of September) till the flat is completely clean and the room is in a livable condition again.
